Deprecated Chrome policies

Applies to managed Chrome browsers and ChromeOS devices.

For administrators who manage Chrome browser or ChromeOS devices for a business or school.

You can use Chrome policies to control how your users experience Chrome browser and ChromeOS devices.

For full descriptions of Chrome policies, including the deprecated ones, see the Chrome Enterprise policy list.


  • Use the same policy-management tools to unset deprecated or removed policies that you used to set them.
  • Unset policies that you’re no longer using.

Deprecated policies

New releases of Chrome introduce new policies and sometimes deprecate old ones. Avoid using deprecated policies because they will be removed in future releases. You might be able to use a better alternative policy.

Deprecated policies:

Removed policies

Sometimes, policies are removed from Chrome because they're no longer useful. Avoid setting removed policies—they can cause Chrome browser errors.

Removed policies:

  • No longer exist in their location in the ADMX templates. Instead, you can find and unset them in the removed policies folder.
  • Don’t appear in Chrome Enterprise policy list searches.

Search for deprecated policies

Use chrome://policy

On a managed device, browse to chrome://policy.
All applied policies, including deprecated or unknown (removed), are listed. For more information, see View a device's current Chrome policies.

  1. Open the Chrome Enterprise policy list.
  2. On the left:
    1. (Optional) From the release list, select the release you want to search in.
    2. Select the Include deprecated policies box.
    3. Enter the policy name in the search field.

Deprecated policies include (deprecated) in red text immediately after the policy name
